It's Valentines Day season and this is when The Thirst can creep up in men and women. So your Classy, BlackGirl wants to share with you that certain behaviors with your ex are simply not acceptable, especially when they have moved on to a new relationship. Let's unbox some of the basic no-no's if you want to remain classy.
*Do not text your Ex. Because of the private nature of texting you can text things that you would probably not say if you were receiving phone calls. You also would not be chatting as frequently as you would text somebody.
A wise person once said,
"Do not go into slippery places if you do not wish to get wet."
*Do not call your ex all of the time. They have a new man or woman now. And remember, you all broke up, that's why you are not together anymore. Respect their new partner. It is horrible to be in a relationship with somebody who has an ex (or baby mama or baby daddy) who simply refuses to move on. Do not be that person.
*When you do call your ex, just check-in. You should not be having 4 hour conversations with them. It makes you look thirsty and quite frankly he or she should be spending that time with their NEW boo.
And I am not trying to hear that "He keeps calling me!" That is trifling and you know it.
If your ex does not have the decency to curb your "friendship" then you most definitely should. It is just the right thing to do. When you get into a new relationship you don't want some lurking ex always in the picture.
Just saying, be a lady or a gentleman.
"Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners."
